NAME

base - Establish IS-A relationship with base class at compile time

SYNOPSIS

    package Baz;
    use base qw(Foo Bar);

DESCRIPTION

Roughly similar in effect to

    BEGIN {
        require Foo;
        require Bar;
        push @ISA, qw(Foo Bar);
    }

When strict 'vars' is in scope base also let you assign to @ISA without having to declare @ISA with the 'vars' pragma first.

This module was introduced with Perl 5.004_04.
